Allegiant is picking up the pace on multiple big projects. Construction is again underway at the much-anticipated Sunseeker Resort and renovations of a nearby country club are set to start soon.

Tranquil beaches, an alluring harborfront, and year-round sunshine – there’s no shortage of activities near Jill Farnsworth’s Charlotte County home.

“We mostly go out on the boat, then boat down the river and out on the harbor,” she said.

That’s why Allegiant Air picked Charlotte Harbor as the future home of the Sunseeker Resort. Construction will resume this month after a 17-month hiatus. Also moving forward are plans to renovate the nearby Kingsway Country Club in Lake Suzy.

“That was intended to have started April 1 of last year, believe it or not. And like everything else, it got put on hold for all the obvious,” said John Redmond, president of Allegiant Air.

It plans to begin repairing the fairway in the fall. Tee times will be exclusive to Sunseeker guests and club members.

“Are they really going to have that many people at the resort? That would keep the golf course busy? I would think they would need locals to have enough golfers out there,” Farnsworth said.

Locals will still be able to enjoy the resort’s restaurants and shops, celebrating great food, great views, and great news for our community.

Allegiant plans to finish work on Sunseeker and the Kingsway Country Club around the same time, 18 to 24 months from now.
